2012 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 759.6
Other hamartoses, not elsewhere classified
- A rare inherited disorder in which blood vessels grow abnormally in the eyes, brain, spinal cord, adrenal glands, or other parts of the body. People with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome have a higher risk of developing some types of cancer.
- autosomal dominant disorder associated with cerebellar and retinal neoplasms; the most common manifestations are neurologic deficits associated with intracranial hemangioblastomas which may hemorrhage, causing ataxia, intracranial hypertension, and other signs of neurologic dysfunction.
- An inherited familial cancer syndrome which is characterized by development of capillary hemangioblastomas of the central nervous system and retina; clear cell renal carcinoma; pheochromocytoma; pancreatic tumors; and inner ear tumors. The syndrome is associated with germline mutations of the VHL tumor suppressor gene, located on chromosome 3p25-26. Symptoms of VHL syndrome may not be apparent until the third decade of life. CNS hemangioblastoma is the most common cause of death, followed by clear cell renal cell carcinoma. --2004
- An inherited condition characterized by generalized hamartomatous multiple polyposis of the intestinal tract. Transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome consistently involves the jejunum and is associated with melanin spots of the lips, buccal mucosa, and fingers. This syndrome is associated with abnormalities of chromosome 19. Also known as Jeghers-Peutz syndrome and Peutz's syndrome. --2004
- A group of neurocutaneous disorders manifested by facial and leptomeningeal angiomas, ipsilateral gyriform calcifications of the cerebral cortex, seizures, development delay, hemiplegia, emotional and behavioral problems, and glaucoma and other ocular disorders. Nevus flammeus on the side of the face ipsilateral to angiomatosis sometimes extends to neck, chest, and back. Angiomatosis may occasionally involve the choroid plexus, thyroid, pituitary gland, lungs, gastrointestinal organs, pancreas, ovaries, and thymus. Correlation between the distribution of the nevus and the course of the trigeminal nerve is responsible for naming the syndrome "trigemino-encephalo-angiomatosis," but later findings found the relationship to be fortuitous. The syndrome frequently occurs in incomplete forms, presenting different combinations of symptoms.
